Jonathan Mullis of Dover-Foxcroft was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008 when he was just 6, but “he has been courageously fighting” the disease, attending school and playing sports ever since, Carol Burnette wrote.

To help the family during Jonathan’s illness, Corinna United Methodist Church and the Corinna Fire Department will hold a benefit spaghetti lunch and silent auction 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at the American Legion Hall on Maple Street in Corinna.

Burnette reports admission is by donation for the event to help the son of Brian and Liz Davids Mullis. Jonathan’s grandparents are Bob and Eleanor Davids of St. Albans, Jay and Dorothy MacDonald of Corinna and the late Corinna resident Myron Mullis.

If you cannot attend but want to help, call Burnette, 278-7952; Evie Bowman, 368-2296; Shawn Richards, 278-4343 or Les Bolstridge, 278-5360.
